Wage Subsidy (Flexi-Wage)
You may be able to get a Flexi-Wage Subsidy to help take on someone on benefit as an employee. We may also be able to help with their training costs.
Who can get it
Your business may qualify for Flexi-Wage if:
- the person you are employing meets the eligibility criteria
- the position is ongoing and continues after the subsidy has finished
- you pay the market wages for the job
- you haven’t dismissed anyone else to employ the person.
You may also be able to get extra funding to help with the costs of training for your new employee (Flexi-Wage Plus) which may include mentoring or in-work support.
Flexi-Wage can help with wages and training.
